I'm more driven by story although I do get interested in a series based on artwork. I have a cacophony of books. I have the 1st volume of the Spider-Man Omnibus (really want to get volume 2 and the second volume of X-Men. I'd like to get the first but I can't exactly afford over $100 on one book. I got my Spider-Man book for about $67), various newspaper anthologies (Peanuts, Family Circus, Fox Trot, King Aroo, Hagar, Wizard of Id, Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side), Some Harvey Comics collections (Hot Stuff, Casper, Richie Rich, etc.), Asterix, and various manga (Black Butler, D.N. Angel, Dears, Get Backers, Demon Diary, Love Hina, Zombie Loan, Sailor Moon, Wild Adapter, Ruroni Kenshin, etc.), and quite a few Archie Comic digests and single comics. All right, so Archie didn't exactly have compelling story-lines and amazing artwork but I enjoyed it. I read them a lot in high school and still pull out my books from time to time and re-read them.

so add my vote for books too, please.
it's really hard to resist all that false sense of achievement. It's even worse with guilds/clans, they pull you in so much deeper, now you have a responsibility to turn up.
I find I have a one track mind when it comes to work and entertainment. I've never been able to balance a lot of things into my day so I'm either all in or not touching it at all. Because of that I tend to work in cycles, I'm very driven to create art for a few months then I get caught up in a game for the next few months, then I'm repulsed by gaming so I'm back to arting and then the games become shiny again and so on. As I grow older I feel guiltier about gaming so I only really play the few games that I expect a lot from or if something's been recommended strongly enough.
my poison of choice most days is some kinda film or tv show, so long as it's in english and it's not too cerebral (or I've seen it before) I can leave it running in the background and still doodle. Sometimes my interest gets piqued and I end up watching it seriously but then that's a failed painting session.
as for comics, I've gone off standard super hero comics, once in a while I'll pick up something if the art is interesting (like anything by Jae Lee) but generally no more x men for me. as soon as i see that inevitable shot where all the characters are perfectly spaced striking a pose for no reason I can no long suspend my disbelief and I'm too caught up in how weird/ridiculous it would be to walk in on these guys. Like Wolverine's eternal hunch/ab crunch of the 90s (iirc)
nope mostly I like to read smaller mini series types, but I'm not sure if I should use the indie label for them. I picture indie as being 2 or even just 1 guy slowly working on his comic in his free time, having been turned away by all publishers. Last few things I read were:
Joe the Barbarian - really inspiring artwork and a great adventure story that made me feel like a little kid
American vampire - I only picked it up to get more of Sean Murphy's art, unfortunately he only contributed a few side issues and I ended up getting the main series
Luther Strode - hyper energetic cartoon violence, and the story is just weird enough to make you want to pick up the next issue to see wth is going on
The real question is what do you read Mr. Sharp?
So I voted cake.
Not really cake though. I don't eat sweets.
